Today was one of the only days G + C just wanted over with. We knew that after our long, rough, climb over the northern ridge of the Tetons, we would finally meet JACOB!!!!
Months ago, when we first started planning the trip, it was intended to be a three man adventure. Shortly thereafter, Jake decided to concentrate on training for his first half Iron-Man (maniac...) and had to back out of the divide. He completed the Iron-Man a couple of weeks ago (congrats!!!!) and almost immediately after decided to join Geoff and Cam on their adventure. Prior to beginning the trip, we often read things how Wyoming was a long stretch and one of the toughest mental legs of the trip. This was awesome timing for Jake's arrival as it kind of renewed the entire adventure. We knew as soon as we saw him we would hit the reset button and start an adventure anew.
Jacob flew into Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and subsequently pedaled up to Flagg ranch the ensuing day. This ride treated him to some spectacular views of the Grand Tetons. Void of communication, the two parties arrived in Flagg Ranch only minutes apart. What a feeling seeing that Fat Bike role in.
Only managed to snag one photo on the ride as we were rushing to see Jacob and Cam was freaking out the entire ride due to the amount of horse flies.
